Castle Bisset

MARCH 15, 2021

Bizarre as it may seem, today we celebrate buzzards. It's not like buzzards are cute or cuddly, or any other pleasant adjective for that matter. So, before we continue, let's make certain we know what we're celebrating. A buzzard is also known as a Turkey Vulture, or simply called a Vulture. Buzzards are scavengers. They eat road kill or carrion. By definition, they eat the dead and putrefying meat of animals ... yuck. Now, aren't you glad to know that we're celebrating buzzards today?

How on earth did we ever get to the point of having Buzzard's Day? Walter Nawalaniec, a Cleveland, Ohio patrolman and bird watcher, tracked the spring migration of returning turkey vultures to the Cleveland area each year. He told local reporter Robert Bordner and historian Eunice Morton that he had observed the buzzards had returned to the area exactly on March 15 for the past six years. History has since proven that Buzzards return to the Cleveland, Ohio area on March 15 most years.

Watching the buzzards return each year became an annual event in the Cleveland area. Along the way, serving and eating pancakes and sausage became part of the tradition for this day. The Migratory Bird Act of 1918 protects buzzards. Turkey vultures perform an important role in the eco-system, cleaning the environment of dead animals. I suppose if people call you an "old buzzard", then this day is for you, too! Start your celebration on this day, by having pancakes and sausage for breakfast. Then, go out and watch for the spring migration of buzzards to your area.
